SOURCE: Fellowes PS-70 Shredder jam

I used needle-nose pliers and regular pliers to pull out all of the jammed paper -- it took an hour but I finally got it. I never did find a release mechanism even after I took the top apart. Thanks anyway!

So where do I buy a Fellows DMS8c paper shedder blade? I hate to have to buy a new shredder when this one was a good one, just needs a new blade. Please advise.

SOURCE: working great until i emptied it now nothing is working

There is a sensor at the back, you can only see a small slot with a little piece of metal, the actuator, that when the top section, the shredder, is in its rigt place in contact with the box will function.
GOOD LUCK.

Does not auto shut-off anymore?


Automatic feed switch jamed with paper. reverse and forward several times may help. Otherwise turn it over and pull paper out of the bottoms to clear the switch jam.

The shredder only goes in reverse. I did oil it, but it doesn't work.


did you try to fix the forward problem by oiling it? That would be my first choice. The Forward and reverse switch would be my first thing to check to make sure the switch is working. Next would be the actual motor to see if it's getting power to go forward.
Oiling it won't fix the forward problem unless it was somehow stuck which would be unlikely since it goes in reverse.
Sorry I couldn't give you more help with this.
Good luck.

My shredder will run in reverse but not auto/forward. It is completely cleared of jams. Any suggestions


There should be a little leaf switch directly in the middle of where you feed in the papers to be shreadded. It could be jammed or simply bad.

Our Olympia paper shredder forward switch does not work but the reverse does.


Hello,

Move the power switch to AUTO (l) position and depress the manual forward button for five seconds to clear paper blockage. Make sure the paper is engaging sensor located in the center of the shredder opening.

Good luck..

The shredder will run in reverse but will not run foreward.


Inside the shredder there is a motor which is wired to run both forward and backward, the way it does this is to transfer the power from the switch to a couple of wires on the motor
The forward running motor will be linked to the auto start button which will tell it to work with the paper sensor.
When you select the Forward function the Auto Start is taken out of circuit and the Forward switch should supply the motor

After all of that I would say that the switch is open circuit on the Forward contact and needs replacing
